U.S., Afghanistan reach deal Pact is key to America’s exit strategy KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The U.S. and Afghanistan reached a deal Sunday on a long-delayed strategic partnership agreement that ensures Americans will provide military and financial support to the Afghan people for at least a decade beyond 2014, the deadline for most foreign forces to withdraw.

The pact is key to the U.S. exit strategy in Afghanistan because it establishes guidelines for any American forces who remain after the withdrawal deadline and for financial help to the impoverished country and its security forces. For the Afghan government, it is also a way to show its people that their U.S. allies are not just

A spring nor’easter rumbled along the East Coast on Sunday and was expected to bring rain and heavy winds and even snow in some places as it strengthens into early Monday, a punctuation to a relatively dry stretch of weather for the Northeast. The storm is atypical for April but not uncommon, said David Stark, a National Weather Service meteorologist in New York City, where 2 to 3 inches of rain are expected in the city with wind gusts of 2530 mph.

Columbus has 200 years of history In fourteen hundred and ninety two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue. In eighteen hundred and ten plus two, Columbus was brand new. All right, I admit I’m not much with poetry. You try to come up with a sentence ending with a word that rhymes with “twelve.” The point is this: I was in Columbus last week and there was a lot of attention being paid to the city’s bicentennial, which is this year.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Reducing government deficits Mitt Romney’s way would mean less money for health care for the poor and disabled and big cuts to nuts-and-bolts functions such as food inspection, border security and education.

Differences over the government’s budget and spiraling deficits are among the starkest that separate Republican Romney and Democratic President Barack Obama. Obama’s budget generally avoids risk, with minimal cuts to rapidly growing health care programs such as Medicare and Medicaid while socking wealthier people with tax increases.

expects to sign the document before a NATO summit in Chicago next month, meeting the deadline set by the two sides. Many had started to worry in recent weeks that Karzai and Obama would miss that goal as talks dragged on and Karzai continued to announce new demands for the document. Much of the disagreement was about how to handle activities that the Afghan government saw as threatening its sovereignty, in particular, night raids and the detention of Afghan citizens by international forces. Those two major issues were resolved earlier this year in separate memorandums of understanding. But closed-door talks continued for weeks after those side-deals were signed. And then as recently as last week, Karzai said that he wanted the agreement to include a dollar figure for funding for the Afghan security forces a demand that would be hard for the Americans to sign off on given the need for congressional approval for funding. U.S. officials have said previously that they expected the document to address economic and development support for Afghanistan more generally. The final document is likely to be short on specifics. U.S. officials involved in the negotiations have said previously that the strategic partnership will provide a framework for future relations, but that details of how U.S. forces operate in the country will come in a later agreement. The initialing ceremony means that the text of the document is now locked in. But the countries will have to go through their own internal review processes, Sundwall said. “For the United States, that will mean interagency review, consultation with Congress as appropriate and final review by the president,” Sundwall said. In Afghanistan, the agreement will have to be approved by parliament. The Afghan foreign minister will brief Afghan lawmakers about the document Monday, the Afghan president’s statement said.

• CONTINUED FROM A1 Ambassador Ryan Crocker. It must still be reviewed in both countries and signed afterward by the Afghan and American presidents. U.S. forces have already started pulling out of Afghanistan, and the majority of combat troops are scheduled to depart by the end of 2014. But the U.S. is expected to maintain a large presence in the country for years after, including special forces, military trainers and government-assistance programs. The agreement is both an achievement and a relief for both sides, coming after months of turmoil that seemed to put the entire alliance in peril. It shows that the two governments are still committed to working together and capable of coming to some sort of understanding. “The document finalized today provides a strong foundation for the security of Afghanistan, the region and the world and is a document for the development of the region,” Spanta said in a statement issued by President Hamid Karzai’s office. Neither Afghan nor U.S. officials would comment on the details of the agreement. A Western official familiar with the negotiations said it outlines a strategic partnership for 10 years beyond 2014. Reaching any agreement is likely to be seen as a success given more than a year and a half of negotiations during which the entire effort appeared in danger of falling apart multiple times. Since the beginning of the year, U.S.-Afghan relations have been strained by an Internet video of American Marines urinating on the corpses of presumed Taliban fighters, by Quran burnings at a U.S. base that sparked days of deadly protests and by the alleged killing spree by a U.S. soldier in a southern Afghan village. Tensions were further heightened by a spate of turncoat attacks by Afghan security forces on their international counterparts. White House National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said President Barack Obama

Ohio will offer amnesty for individual taxpayers continuing. The Blade reports the state collected $66 million in past-due taxes during the last general tax amnesty in 2006. Those who qualify will be able to pay back taxes without penalties and only half the interest owed under the 2012 amnesty program, which runs until June 15.

TOLEDO (AP) — Ohioans who are behind on their state taxes will get a chance to catch up when a tax amnesty begins on May 1. The program is the first for individuals in six years and just the third general amnesty program for Ohio, although the state did begin an amnesty program for businesses in October that is

Lammers has a sales background from being a senior director with The Pampered Chef, a developer and seller of kitchen tools and recipes, and uses those techniques to help children understand their product and sell it to the judges at the convention. “I like that little bit of confidence that they know their product better than anyone else, and they’ll sell it,” Lammers said.

What is a Sea Otter? A sea otter is a marine mammal that lives in the costal waters in the central and North Pacific Ocean. It is the smallest marine mammal in North America and is about four feet long. Female otters weigh an average of 45 pounds and male otters weigh an average of 65 pounds. Sea otters live an average of 10 to 11 years. What do sea otters eat? Sea otters eat clams, crabs, snails, sea stars, abalone, and 40 other marine animals. Sea otters dive up to 330 feet to find food. Their average dive lasts about 50 seconds. The longest dive recorded lasted four minutes. When sea otters come to the surface they lie on their back and use their stomachs as a table. Sometimes they use a tool, such as a rock, to help them open the hard shells of their prey. They bang the hard shell on the rock until it breaks open. Sea otters have to eat 2025 percent of their body weight every day to stay alive. That means a 40-pound otter must eat 10 pounds of food every day! How do sea otters swim? Sea otters usually swim on their back at the water’s surface. They use their rear flippers to move and their tails to steer. They don’t swim very fast (about 1 miles per hour). If otters are frightened, they will flip over on their stomachs and swim away. Sometimes they will dive under water to get away. How do sea otters stay warm? The water that southern sea otters live in is a chilly 30 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit – much too cold for humans. Otters don’t have blubber to keep them warm like other marine mammals. Instead, they rely on

their thick fur coats and their fast metabolism. Sea otter fur is the thickest fur of any animal. It has 600,000 to one million hairs per square inch. Humans only have 100,000 hairs on their whole head! It is important for otters to keep individual hairs clean. If the fur isn’t clean, it gets matted and this can lead to death by hypothermia. Why aren’t their more sea otters? Two hundred years ago, 300,000 otters may have ranged along the 6,000 miles of Pacific coastline from northern Japan, through the Aleutian Islands of Alaska and down the coast of California to Baja California in Mexico. Because the pelts of sea otters are thick, warm and beautiful, fur hunters killed hundreds of thousands of them – until not a single otter was visible along the entire California coastline. The southern sea otter was thought to be extinct. Then, in 1938, a raft of about 30 to 50 otters was discovered off the coast of Big Sur, California. The population has grown and spread along 200 miles of California coastline, but its population is still small – only about 2,200. Southern sea otters are now protected by the Endangered Species Act and the Marine Mammal Protection Act so they can no longer be hunted. Where do southern sea otters live? Southern sea otters are found in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of central California. They range from Ano Nuevo (9 miles north of Santa Cruz) to Purisima Point (just north of Point Conception). Additionally, there is a small colony off San Nicolas Island near Santa Barbara.

Usually, sea otters stay close to shore, but sometimes they are found as far out as four miles from shore. Otters rest in kelp forests in groups called rafts. Often they will drape the kelp over their bodies to keep from drifting away. Now there are other threats to otters. Oil spills can be fatal to the sea otter and could cause this species to become extinct. Oil coats the fur, destroying the blanket of air that keeps the otter warm. This causes chilling, hypothermia and death.

Other kinds of pollution in our oceans threaten sea otters. Fishing nets are another cause of sea otter deaths. Se otters become caught in the nets and drown. Laws have been passed to limit the use of fishing nets along the coastline to protect sea otters. How can you tell a juvenile from an adult? • Juveniles are smaller. • Juveniles have darker fur. • Juveniles are not as proficienct at diving – their motions are not as graceful and their dives are generally of shorter

See if you can find and circle the words listed. They are hidden in the puzzle vertically, horizontally, and diagonally — some are even spelled backwards.

What can you do to help sea otters and marine life? Here are a few ways that you and your family can make a difference: • Do not pollute storm drains. • Do not flush kitty litter down toilets. • Be careful what you put down your drains at home. • Help keep our beaches clean – every little bit of trash collected helps! • Buy environmentally friendly products – use paper bags, not plastic. • Use public transportation, carpool, walk or ride your bike. • Do the 4 “Rs” = Refill, Reduce, Reuse, & Recycle. • Can you think of some others? If so, write to us at: Friends of the Sea Otter P.O. Box 223260 Carmel, CA 93922 or email us at: info@seaotters.org

The Ghost in the Courthouse Statue Written by Bill Bailey Illustrated by Michelle Duckworth Chapter 4 The ride of my life begins STORY SO FAR: When Jake Passmore, the new editor of The Jefferson Times, arrives in town, he sees Donnie and Humpty trying to talk to a ghost in a statue. Donnie expects criticism for his overactive imagination. Instead, Jake says it's a gift. When Jake meets Donnie's mom, Holly, unpleasant sparks fly, as they swap insults. With the tension rising, someone arrives whom Donnie thinks might help patch things up between them. As Humpty and I watched the awkward meeting between Mom and the new editor, things went from bad to ugly. They were like oil and water - Jake was slick, and Mom was icy. I was afraid Jake might fire Mom or that she might quit before she ever worked a day for him. I found myself wanting Mom and Jake to get along. For one thing, Jake had to be the only guy in town who didn't think Humpty and I were stupid. My dad, who had left town a year ago when he and Mom split up - he sure thought so. He had called Humpty "that silly dummy." Mom said I shouldn't take that personal. But how else was I supposed to take it? On the other hand, Jake said he wanted Humpty and me on his team. Nobody ever wanted me on their team. In fact, I didn't know anybody half as cool as Jake who would want me anywhere near him. So, for once, I was glad to see Mom's biggest enemy, Sheriff Matlock, heading toward Jake, with his lopsided swagger, hitching up his pants and chewing on a fat cigar. The way I had it figured, since she was already worked up, Mom would lose it when she saw the sheriff and fire her zingers at him instead of Jake. Then, Jake would join in on her side, and they could make up and be friends because they now had the same enemy. Sheriff Matlock is a descendant of William Matlock - one of the ornery outlaw brothers who gunned down Felix LaBauve over 130 years ago. That family must have a meanness gene that gets passed down through the generations. Speaking of descendants, there's something I haven't mentioned yet. Mom says Felix is my great-great-great-greatgrandfather. That's a lot of greats. "Maybe we pass down greatness, like the Matlocks do meanness," I said to Mom. Felix grew up without a dad, kind of like I was having to do. His dad died when he was six years old in France, and two years later, his mom sent him away to live with his uncles in America. Talk about having it tough. He had to leave his mom and cross an ocean all alone on a ship to another country - where he didn't know anybody. My life was a piece of cake compared to that. On Felix's tombstone in the cemetery, it says, "In death as in life - alone." With those thoughts bouncing around in my head, I looked up at the statue. I realized Felix had the saddest eyes I'd ever seen. Then I saw something really weird - a wet

spot, like a tear, below his left eye. Must be the birds again, I told myself quickly. "Hey there, Holly," the sheriff said, bringing me back to my senses. He tipped his hat to Mom with fake politeness. "I sure do miss your old boss, George Elder. This town just ain't the same since he passed away." What a liar! When Mr. Elder was editor of the newspaper, he had been a major thorn in the sheriff's side. He and Mom had worked together on stories about how the sheriff got illegal kickbacks of money from every juke joint and bingo parlor in the county. In fact, Mr. Elder was working on a really big story when he died. Mom said he was going to expose how Sheriff Matlock had stolen several million dollars from the government. "Well, there's always a silver lining, Sheriff," Mom said. "You'd be in jail by now if George were still alive." The sheriff chomped on his cigar and shot her a nasty look - but quickly covered it with a phony smile. "What say, we let bygones be bygones, Holly?" he said. He turned to Jake. "I take it you're the new editor. I'm Sheriff Matlock. I wanna be the first to welcome you to our little town." "Now, that's what I'm talking about," Jake said, flashing a smile. "Southern hospitality. Holly, you could learn some manners from Sheriff Matlock here." Mom rolled her eyes. Jake and the sheriff shook hands. "Jake Passmore," he said. "It's a pleasure to meet you." I detected a flicker in the sheriff's eyes as he picked up on the conflict between Mom and Jake. "You need anything - anything at all - you just give me a call," the sheriff gushed. "I always believe in being open with the press." Then, he gave Mom a look and said, "All I ask is that they play fair." "I'm sure we'll get along great," Jake said, before Mom could get in a word. "Truth is, I'm not interested in crime news. Unless it's something unique, like a vampire or a werewolf on the loose." The sheriff stared at Jake with his mouth gaping open, the cigar drooping from his lip. Deciding it had to be a joke, he grinned broadly. "Vampires and werewolves, eh?" he chuckled. "We'll see what we can find for you." "And UFOs, of course" Jake said. "Seen any of those lately?"

NIE Coordinator: Dana Wolfe / Graphic Designer: Scarlett E. Smith

"You-what?" asked the sheriff. "Unidentified flying objects," said Jake. The sheriff's smile was starting to look a bit shaky. "Uh, can't say as I have. But if I spot one, you'll be the first to know." "What about Big Foot?" Jake asked. "Big what?" the sheriff said. "Sasquatch. The giant swamp creature. You've got a lot of low Delta land around here. Surely you've run across a few giant footprints." The sheriff dropped the smile and slowly removed his cigar. "You pulling my leg, boy?" "I'm as serious as a heart attack," Jake said. "Vampires, UFOs, Big Foot? That your kind of news?" the sheriff asked. "Only kind there is," Jake said. "Readers love it." The sheriff smiled faintly to himself, like he had arrived at a decision about this new guy. He pulled thoughtfully on his chin. "Seems like I recollect hearing about a hairy, one-eyed beast that one hunter saw," he said. "I can look into it, if you like." "Now you're talking!" Jake smiled. The sheriff shook Jake's hand goodbye. "I can tell, you and me are gonna get along just fine," the sheriff said. Tipping his hat to Mom, he waddled off. Jake yelled after him, "Just remember, Sheriff. You've got a friend at the Times."

Mom's eyes were shooting darts at Jake. I realized now how wrong I had been to think the sheriff would bring Mom and Jake together. I just couldn't read this new guy at all. Once the sheriff was out of earshot, Mom exploded. "Please tell me you didn't just tell the biggest crook in Jefferson that he can steal the county blind - because you won't be watching!" "I didn't say anything of the sort," said Jake. "You told him the only news you care about is UFOs and creature sightings. He must think you're crazy as a bedbug." "I couldn't care less what he thinks," Jake said. "He can tell you won't be a watchdog for the public, like George Elder was. You practically gave him a license to steal." Jake looked at his flashy Rolex watch. "Ooh, time's getting by. Holly, what do you say we continue our discussion at tomorrow's staff meeting?" I thought he had forgotten about Humpty and me. But he wheeled around and focused on us. "And I want both of you to be there, too." I couldn't figure for the life of me why he wanted Humpty and me at his staff meeting. I had been forced to sit through a few of them while waiting on Mom, and they were always incredibly dull. "Boring," Humpty said in a singsongy voice. "That's one thing it won't be," Jake said, flashing a grin. "In fact, it just may be the ride of your life."

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP Los Angeles Times on Cuba’s exclusion at the Summit of the Americas: Once again, Cuba was absent from the Summit of the Americas. Yet the communist nation might as well have attended the gathering last weekend in Cartagena, Colombia, because it took center stage, despite U.S. efforts to focus on other issues. Ecuador’s president refused to attend the summit in protest of Cuba’s exclusion. Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos and Brazil’s Dilma Rouseff, both moderates rather than left-wingers, said there should be no more Summits of the Americas without Cuba. A leftist bloc of nations that includes Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia and some Caribbean countries said it won’t participate again unless Cuba does. And the meeting ended without a final joint declaration because the United States and Canada refused to agree to language specifying that Cuba would be invited to future summits. The controversy should serve as a wake-up call to the United States: The policy of banning Cuba from the gathering of the hemisphere’s leaders for nearly 18 years is backfiring.

The federal government started its student loans in 1965, opening college doors to young people who would pay back the loans when they got the job. Later, the federal government added a provision that the loans could not be discharged in bankruptcy. That put a stop to the practice of declaring bankruptcy after graduating from, say, medical school and leaving the government holding a big IOU. But in 2005, the prohibition on discharging student debt through bankruptcy was extended to private loans. Some for-profit schools found they could make big profits by encouraging students — wooed with promises of high-paying jobs — to borrow huge amounts. The schools get the money upfront, and their bottom lines are unaffected if students don’t graduate or don’t get jobs in their fields. Ninety-five percent of the for-profit school revenue comes from the federal government. Accrediting agencies — funded by the schools they oversee — provide scant protection. It’s a system that’s ripe for abuse. The weight of all that debt may be affecting the overall economy, as cash-strapped young people put off getting married and buying big-ticket items such as cars and houses. President Barack Obama is pushing proposals to make repayment easier. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., is promoting legislation that would remove the protection against bankruptcy for private loans. Those efforts sound wise to us. Being financially destroyed at a young age is one lesson young people don’t need to learn first-hand.

DOONESBURY

Columbus has 200 years of rich history going for it In fourteen hundred and ninety two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue. In eighteen hundred and ten plus two, Columbus was brand new. All right, I admit I’m not much with poetry. You try to come up with a sentence ending with a word that rhymes with “twelve.” The point is this: I was in Columbus last week and there was a lot of attention being paid to the city’s bicentennial, which is this year. Columbus was founded on Valentine’s Day 1812. The towns of Chillicothe and Zanesville had been engaged in a tug-of-war to be the state capital. The state legislature decided it needed a new capital, and so someone got out a map and pointed at the middle of the state and said, “Why not right there?” Everyone agreed that it was a good spot and there was plenty of room where in future years someone could build a big football stadium, so Columbus was born. Four years later, it officially became the state capital. Now, 200 years seems like a long time but it terms of age Columbus is still pretty much a

David Lindeman Troy Daily News Columnist young city. Go to Europe or the Middle East and you can visit cities thousands of years old. On the East Coast, there are cities that are almost 200 years older than Columbus. Even cities around here are older than Columbus. Troy was founded in 1808. Piqua has a long history of habitation going back to Indian settlements; the first building by European settlers at the current site of the city was built in the 1790s. Piqua originally was called Washington, but Piqua’s residents figured out pretty quickly that there was likely to be a town named for George Washington around every corner, so in 1816 they asked to have the name changed to Piqua. Not

much chance of too many other Piquas sprouting up (although, yes, there is an unincorporated area in Kansas called Piqua, apparently named by a nomadic Piqua man who was homesick). Cincinnati was founded 1788. Dayton was founded on April 1, 1796. Even cities west of here are older than Columbus. St. Louis, for instance, was founded in 1764. San Antonio was founded in 1718. It makes you wonder why it took so long for someone to figure out that Columbus was such a good spot. All these other cities were founded by someone or a group of someones who were looking for a new place to call home. Troy, of course, was founded by Benjamin Overfield. Benjamin Van Cleve was among the founders of Dayton. (Apparently there was something about the name “Benjamin” back then.) Columbus was different. It was founded by a bunch of guys sitting around a table, trying to keep the residents of Chillicothe and Zanesville from shooting each other. But the city sure has made up for lost time. In an area of the country that

has suffered population loss and economic stagnation, Columbus is booming. Cleveland and Cincinnati are old money and history; Columbus is excitement. People are leaving old Midwestern colossuses like Detroit, Cleveland and St. Louis like rats jumping off a sinking ship. Columbus can hardly keep up with the people wanting to move in. Columbus has a lot to celebrate on its 200th anniversary. It has a rich history, a prosperous present and a bright future. If you’re looking for things to do this year, the city has scheduled a large number of events as part of the celebration. You can even drive over on the old National Road if you want to get an extra dose of history. The Columbus celebration pretty much is a celebration for the entire state. So happy birthday, Columbus – and, by the way, a few more wins in that big football stadium this fall would be a good way to cap off the celebration.

ANNIE’S MAILBOX

You may want to re-examine your bond with ‘Don’ Dear Annie: I'm 60, divorced and currently seeing "Don." He's five years my junior and extremely attentive. Don has a background of violence (one incident landed him in jail), but he now manages his anger. However, he still refuses to stand down to anyone who threatens him. He brags about being a Marine and that he has skills to make people disappear. He also brags about his sexual prowess and then tells me we have no passion in our lovemaking and that's why he has trouble in bed. He blames it on my hysterectomy, but my doctor says the problem isn't mine. Don is a good listener and a versatile handyman and has a great sense of humor. He lives on his parents' property in an old mobile home in exchange for helping his parents around their home and with his dad's business. For this, he is paid hourly wages. He also earns a cut from a landscape business. He doesn't have his own car. He drives mine, comes and goes as he pleases, eats my food, watches my cable TV, and has scrapped material and tools from my house and sold them for cash. The bigger issue, however, is that he says he isn't ready to get married because he doesn't know me well enough. Annie, I want some financial stability and long-term commitment in my life. None of my family or friends feels he's the right guy. We never do anything with other couples. I don't know who his friends are, but he said I wouldn't want to hang out with them. They are drinkers and dopers. He's a recovering alcoholic, but still smokes pot. And he's lied to me about it. He also spies on me, checking my email and phone messages and creeping into my home unnoticed to see what I'm doing. We never argue. I love him for all his kindness and know beyond a doubt that he loves me. Should I give him more time? — Ready To Settle Down Dear Ready: For the life of us, we can't understand why you want a lifetime commitment from a 55year-old man who still lives with his parents, doesn't earn enough to have his own car, takes advantage of you, belittles you in bed, has a bad temper, lies to you, spies on you, smokes pot and hangs around with drinkers and dopers. You sound desperate. Please reconsider this relationship. There are worse things than being alone. Dear Annie: One of my teachers recently passed away after a week in the hospital. The death notice was very short and made no mention of his teaching career or any of the great relationships he had. It only said, "He will be loved and missed." I feel like writing a letter to the editor telling the small bit of his life story that I experienced as his student. Should I? — Sad Student Dear Sad: Oh, yes, please do. And send a copy, along with a personal note, to his family. It would mean the world to them to know how much he mattered in your life. Too often these things go unsaid when the words would be much appreciated. Dear Annie: You blew it in your answer to "Card Woes," whose husband received a card from "Betty," a former female coworker. You said the husband was not being entirely truthful. Not once did you suggest that checking the trash to look for "evidence" or opening an old briefcase to discover a phone number were wrong. You should have castigated the wife for her snooping. — George Dear George: We aren't big fans of snooping, but we do support gut instincts. First, the wife finds out that her husband used to meet a female co-worker for frequent lunches. Then he tells her he's thrown out the co-worker's card when he has, in fact, hidden it and added a private phone number. He is not being truthful, and we can't blame her for acting on her suspicions. Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

HINTS FROM HELOISE

Unwanted long hair can become Locks of Love Dear Readers: If you have decided to cut your long hair, have you thought about helping a good cause at the same time? Locks of Love is a nonprofit organization that takes donated hair and produces hairpieces for children who have lost their hair because of a medical condition. These special kids under the age of 21 can’t afford a “hairpiece” that might cost between $3,000 and $6,000! The “bare hair” facts: It must be at least 10 inches long and in a ponytail or braid. Colored and permed hair is accepted, but it cannot be

Hints from Heloise Columnist bleached hair. To donate your hair, place the clean ponytail into a zippered plastic bag, then into a padded envelope. Mail to: Locks of Love, 234 Southern Blvd., West Palm Beach, FL 33405-2701. Don’t have quite 10 inches? Shorter hair is accepted but is

sold to help with manufacturing costs. The same is true for gray hair. Locks of Love also accepts financial donations. For more information on this fantastic organization visit the website, www.locksoflove.org, or call 888-896-1588 for recorded instructions. — Heloise FAST FACTS Dear Readers: Hints to make your office a “green” space: • Use refillable pens instead of disposable. • Bring your coffee mug instead of using foam cups. • Use the back side of old computer printouts as scratch paper.

• Keep extra individual condiment packets and napkins. • If your office doesn’t recycle, volunteer to take the recycling yourself. — Heloise GARBAGE DAY Dear Heloise: Here is my hint for you: I always wait to clean out my refrigerator until the night before or the morning of garbage day. I throw away anything that is expired or no longer good. That way, it is only in the garbage for a short time and will not start to smell before the garbagemen arrive to empty my trash can. — Camden, via email

HOROSCOPE Monday, April 23, 2012 If you minimize frivolous pursuits and instead spend your time working on worthy endeavors, you’ll be rewarded quite handsomely in the year ahead. It’s a period when you can make many good things happen. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Decisions based on “quickie” solutions will likely be too fragile to withstand the test of time. When it comes to something important, base your judgments on enduring, tested factors. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Don’t attempt to take on a do-it-yourself project unless you are well trained to handle the job, or at least have someone with know-how to help you out and back you up. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Demanding others to do what you won’t or can’t do yourself could result in some angry responses if you happen to pick someone who is willing to stand up against you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Letting a misunderstanding between you and your mate linger and fester is asking for additional trouble. The sooner you kiss and make up, the better. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Even if the offender deserves it, don’t criticize him or her in front of others if at all possible. Unfortunately, if onlookers don’t know what happened, it could make you look bad. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — When it comes to your commercial dealings, take nothing for granted, even the small points. These could be the very issues that could cause a host of trouble. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Instead of insisting that everything go your way, you should strive to be cooperative with the wishes of others. If you don’t and something goes wrong, you’ll have to accept all the blame. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — It’s to your advantage to tell things as they really are, without stretching the facts just to make your story more colorful. Even tiny embellishments could cause trouble. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Although normally you’re a pretty generous person, you might be hesitant to part with anything of value unless you are guaranteed to get back something in return. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You’ll only hamper your chances for success if you do something that you would later regret merely for pride’s sake. Don’t let vanity or presumption get in the way. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — If you want to have your views respected by others, you must not be close-minded about theirs. Treat what they have to say with due consideration, and your opinions will be given the same courtesy. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Be hopeful about what you take on, but by the same token don’t depend on Lady Luck to do your bidding. A concerted effort on you part will be required.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Monday, April 23, the 114th day of 2012. There are 252 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 23, 1789, Presidentelect George Washington and his wife, Martha, moved into the first executive mansion, the Franklin House, in New York. On this date: • In 1616, English poet and dramatist William Shakespeare, 52, died on what has been traditionally regarded as the anniversary of his birth in 1564. • In 1910, former President Theodore Roosevelt delivered his

famous “Man in the Arena” speech at the Sorbonne in Paris. • In 1954, Hank Aaron of the Milwaukee Braves hit the first of his record 755 major-league home runs in a game against the St. Louis Cardinals. • In 1961, Judy Garland performed her legendary concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall. • In 1962, NASA launched Ranger 4 on a mission to the moon. (The spacecraft was supposed to transmit pictures and data just before crashing into the lunar surface three days later; however, due to equipment malfunction, no data was sent.)

• In 1969, Sirhan Sirhan was sentenced to death for assassinating New York Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. (The sentence was later reduced to life imprisonment.) • In 2005, website YouTube uploaded its first video, titled “Me at the Zoo,” consisting of 18 seconds of co-founder Jawed Karim standing in front of an elephant enclosure at the San Diego Zoo. • Today’s Birthdays: Actressturned-diplomat Shirley Temple Black is 84. Filmmaker-author Michael Moore is 58. Actress Valerie Bertinelli is 52. Actor George Lopez is 51.

Heavy rain pelts Eastern states April snowflakes in the forecast for some areas NEW YORK (AP) — A spring nor’easter rumbled along the East Coast on Sunday and was expected to bring rain and heavy winds and even snow in some places as it strengthens into early Monday, a punctuation to a relatively dry stretch of weather for the Northeast. The storm is atypical for April but not uncommon, said David Stark, a National Weather Service meteorologist in New York City, where 2 to 3 inches of rain are expected in the city with wind gusts of 2530 mph. With the storm came a spate of disruptions. Pro baseball games were postponed in New York and Washington. The space shuttle Enterprise’s scheduled arrival in New York City was pushed back. An Earth Day celebration at a park in Virginia Beach, Va., was canceled. From Philadelphia north through New York City and into southern New England up to 4 inches of rain could fall, with the heaviest downpour expected early Monday. Some higher-elevation areas in the western parts of Pennsylvania and New York and in West Virginia and Ohio could even see snow. Forecasts called for 4 to 12 inches. Flooding was possible in some areas, but precipitation in much of the Northeast is below normal for this time of year. “We’re down 7 or 8 inches,” weather service forecaster Charlie Foley said. “This won’t completely wipe out the deficit but it will certainly help.” Even Lake Champlain on the Vermont-New York border, normally close to flood stage this time of year because of rain and

snowmelt, is near a record low. Just a year ago, it approached its highest level on record. The storm’s biggest threat is likely power outages caused by falling trees and limbs bringing down power lines, said meteorologist John Darnley. Another unseasonable nor’easter last year just before Halloween dumped up to 2 feet of wet, heavy snow that snapped tree limbs and power lines, and knocked out power to more than 3 million customers in the Northeast. In Connecticut, it broke a state record for the number of power company customers left in the dark by a single storm that had been set only two months earlier when the remnants of Hurricane Irene slammed the state as it barreled up the Eastern Seaboard. The worst of the flooding from Irene was in Vermont and northern New York, where cleanups continue seven months later. Farmers are still grappling with cropsmothering rocks, trees, gravel and sand left behind when the flood waters receded. But the dry weather has eased the threat the debris that litters the landscape will rush downriver again. Farther south, light rain was falling Sunday over the Baltimore and Washington metro areas and was expected to intensify throughout the day, said meteorologist Carrie Suffren, who warned drivers to beware of low visibility and slick roadways. She cautioned boaters on the Chesapeake Bay of the winds. In Florida, a woman had to be rescued Saturday night during thunder-

Whether posting or responding to an advertisement, watch out for offers to pay more than the advertised price for the item. Scammers will send a check and ask the seller to wire the excess through Western Union (possibly for courier fees). The scammer's check is fake and eventually bounces and the seller loses the wired amount. While banks and Western branches are Union trained at spotting fake checks, these types of scams are growing increasingly sophisticated and fake checks often aren't caught for weeks. Funds wired through Western Union or MoneyGram are irretrievable and virtually untraceable.

Hamlin wins Kansas KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — The sun shined brightly on Denny Hamlin at Kansas Speedway. At the most opportune of times, too. Hamlin’s car hooked up after the final pit stop Sunday, just as the sun finally broke through on an overcast afternoon, and he powered by Martin Truex Jr. for the lead. Hamlin then managed to hold off a late charge by Truex to win for the second time this season.

April 23, 2012

“Whether it was coincidence or not,” Hamlin said, “our car definitely felt better when the sun came out. I felt the car lost a lot of grip, but I guess a lot of guys did.” It was Hamlin’s first career win at Kansas, and gave his Joe Gibbs Racing team some momentum heading to Richmond, where the Virginia AP PHOTO driver has won twice in 12 career Denny Hamlin (11) crosses the finish line to win the NASCAR starts.

Flyers beat Pens, advance to semis Claude Giroux had his coach call him the best player in the world. Giroux needed one shift to prove that claim is more than hometown hype. He flattened Sidney Crosby only 5 seconds into the game, buried his sixth goal of the series past Marc-Andre Fleury 27 seconds later, and led a Philadelphia Flyers charge into the second round. See Page 16.

Cincinnati Reds’ Joey Votto hits a one-run double against the Chicago Cubs during the third inning of a baseball game Sunday in Chicago.

Cueto solid in win Reds earn 4-3 rubber match victory over Cubs CHICAGO (AP) — On a cold blustery day, Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker was happy to be able to walk away with a victory. Johnny Cueto threw 6 1-3 strong innings to lead Cincinnati to a 4-3 win over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday in a ragged performance by both teams in tough playing conditions. “It’s what you call an ugly win, I guess,” Baker said. “It was sort of which team played the worst today. We were fortunate enough to come away with the win.”

Cueto (2-0) allowed one earned run, scattering five hits. He struck out seven and lowered his ERA to 1.78 for the season. “I felt (good) the whole time today,” Cueto said through an interpreter. “I like the way I threw all the pitches because I was aggressive with every single pitch I threw today.” Cueto worked around a single, walk and his own error in the third inning, and gave up both of his runs in the fifth, a Cubs rally that included another error and a hit batter.

“Johnny was great today, until that one inning he kind of lost it,” Baker said. That inning was the seventh, when he walked a batter and hit another with a pitch before giving way to Logan Ondrusek, who walked Steve Clevenger to load the bases. Ondrusek recovered to strike out Alfonso Soriano. Aroldis Chapman came on to strike out Ian Stewart looking with a fastball that registered 99 miles per hour on the stadium scoreboard, preserving the

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Ben Curtis won the Texas Open on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title since 2006, holding off Matt Every and John Huh in a tense back-nine finish for a two-stroke victory. Curtis birdied the par-5 18th for an even-par 72 and 9-under total. It was a redeeming and emotional win for the 2003 British Open winner whose long slump relegated him to status so low that the victory came in only the fourth PGA Tour event that he managed to get into this year. Curtis calmly hugged his caddie after coolly sinking the clinching 12footer, but then fought back tears just moments later while being interviewed. “It’s been a tough couple years just fighting through it,” Curtis said softly and haltingly, after pausing for a few seconds to compose himself. Every had a 71 and lost a chance at his first tour win with a shaky putter. Huh roared back with a 69, but the Mayakoba Classic winner fell just short of completing what would have been a remarkable comeback. Huh nearly withdrew Thursday when he plunged to 5 over through only his first three holes and finished with a 77. But he rebounded with rounds of 68 and 67 to give Curtis and Every another player to worry about Sunday. “I didn’t really expect too much, final round,” Huh said. While Huh’s first round was ultimately too big of a hole to overcome, Every couldn’t close the deal after starting the tournament with a course-record 63. Four blown putts from 9 feet or closer including a 6footer for birdie kept Every a stroke back until Curtis birdied No. 18. It was nonetheless a validating week for the 28-year-old Floridian, whose only name recognition in three winless years on the tour was a misdemeanor marijuana arrest as a rookie in 2010. That earned a PGA Tour suspension, and even now, Every’s official biography lists regaining his tour privileges as his biggest achievement.

Indians struggle in loss OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Justin Masterson was unbeatable last April. This year, the Cleveland right-hander is still winless in the month. Masterson labored his way through a third consecutive start, matching his career-high of six walks while allowing four runs over five innings in the Indians’ 5-1 loss to the Oakland Athletics on Sunday. That’s 10 walks in the last 8 2-3 innings for Cleveland’s opening-day starter, a trend Masterson doesn’t seem too concerned with despite the results. “We’re not trying to pick the corners but we seem to be just right there, just missing,” Masterson said. “We’re real close. It’s nothing way out, nothing real crazy. It’s just something that’s happened, a little spree of games. Hopefully we can turn it around.” AP PHOTO Travis Hafner doubled in a run for the Cleveland Indians’ Justin Masterson works Indians, who were trying to start the seaagainst the Oakland Athletics during the first son 8-1 on the road for the first time since inning Sunday in Oakland, Calif. 1910. Hafner reached base in 11 of his 14

plate appearances in the series. Unlike the first two games, Cleveland failed to generate much offense and repeatedly hurt itself with miscues in the field even though the Indians weren’t charged with any errors. “There were a couple of plays that we should have been where we didn’t and it cost (Masterson) a few pitches,” Cleveland manager Manny Acta said. “We didn’t score enough runs and gave away way too many outs running the bases and also defensively.” Seth Smith hit a two-run homer, helping Tyson Ross get his first win in nearly a year to help Oakland avoid a series sweep. Cliff Pennington had two hits and drove in two runs for the A’s, who ended a two-game slide and have won four of six. Kurt Suzuki also drove in a run. Ross (1-0) allowed a run and four hits in 6 2-3 innings. He walked five and struck out four while getting his first victory since last May 14 against the Chicago White Sox.

Flyers oust Penguins PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Claude Giroux had his coach call him the best player in the world. Giroux needed one shift to prove that claim is more than hometown hype. He flattened Sidney Crosby only 5 seconds into the game, buried his sixth goal of the series past MarcAndre Fleury 27 seconds later, and led a Philadelphia Flyers charge into the second round. Giroux wrapped up a dominant series with a goal and two assists, Ilya Bryzgalov had his first outstanding effort in net and the Flyers beat the 108point Pittsburgh Penguins 5-1 on Sunday to win their Eastern Conference opening-round series in six games. “G is a very special player,” Bryzgalov said. “There’s not very many players like that in the world.” Giroux strapped the Flyers to his 24-year-old back and gave the Flyers an opening shift to remember. In a series where no lead was safe, the Flyers scored the first three goals and made it stand behind stout defense and stellar play out of Bryzgalov. Bryzgalov allowed 20 goals in the first five games. He settled down in Game 6 and gave up only Evgeni Malkin’s goal in the second period. The Flyers had stormed out to a 3-0 lead in the bestof-seven series before Pittsburgh won two straight. A day before Game

The Flyers delivered with 40 blocked shots. “Guys were sacrificing their bodies to block shots and were paying the price taking hits to make plays,” Hartnell said. “It was awesome to see.” Bryzgalov was at last the shutdown goalie the Flyers expected when they gave him $51 million to steady

one of Philadelphia’s weak links. He outplayed Fleury and helped the Flyers advance to the conference semifinals for the third straight season. Bruins 4, Capitals 3 OT WASHINGTON — Because Tyler Seguin and Tim Thomas returned to form, the Bruins are heading back to Boston for another game against the Washington Capitals. Seguin scored at 3:17 of overtime, Thomas made 36

saves, and the Bruins beat Washington 4-3 on Sunday to tie the first-round Eastern Conference playoff series at three games apiece. The defending Stanley Cup champion Bruins never trailed, but needed a stolen pass and a deft bit of skating by Seguin to finally get the decisive goal and avoid elimination. The series finale is Wednesday night in Boston. The first six games were all decided by one goal, three of them in overtime.

His car kept getting better with each stop, though, and his Toyota finally took off at the end. Just as the sun finally

“Hey man, you did a great job,” came the reply. “They know we were here.” Truex said his final set of tires cost him. He was the loosest he’d been all race, and that allowed Hamlin to charge into the lead. Truex rallied within a car length with two laps to go, but he couldn’t make a move on the bottom side stick, allowing Hamlin to pull away. “I guess if we can be this frustrated with second, it tells you how close we are as a team,” said Truex, who has-

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Manu Ginobili scored 20 points to lead the San Antonio Spurs to their seventh straight victory, 114-98 over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday. San Antonio (47-16) moved 1 games ahead of Oklahoma City, which lost to the Lakers earlier Sunday, in the race for the best record in the Western Conference. A victory over Portland on Monday would secure the top spot in the West for the Spurs, who own the tiebreaker over the Thunder.

Cleveland (21-42) lost for the fourth time in its last five games despite the Spurs giving Tim Duncan the night off. With the playoffs right around the corner, the 35year-old Duncan was the only active Spur not to play. Stephen Jackson scored 17 points for the Spurs, DeJuan Blair added 15 points and seven rebounds, and Danny Green had 14 points. Antawn Jamison led Cleveland with 21 points, Kyrie Irving had 19, and Manny Harris added 14.

Reds ■ CONTINUED FROM 14 lead. Chapman also worked a scoreless eighth, though he did walk his first two batters this season. In 10 1-3 scoreless innings, Chapman has 18 strikeouts while allowing just three hits. Former Cub Sean Marshall pitched the ninth, picking up his third save. “It’s a good cap to our weekend,” Marshall said. “Our team played hard under some tough conditions in Chicago. It’s good to win a series and go home on the plane happy.” The Reds capitalized

on Chicago mistakes to break a 2-2 tie in the sixth. Randy Wells and reliever Scott Maine combined to walk two batters and hit another, while Geovany Soto made two throwing errors on sacrifice bunt attempts. All told, the Reds sent eight batters to the plate in the sixth, scoring two unearned runs without the benefit of a hit. “We walked the leadoff guy and everything kind of snowballed,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. “They were giving us outs (on bunts) and we didn’t get the outs on the bunts.”

NASCAR ■ CONTINUED FROM 14 “I felt all day I was behind the 56 and his car looked so superior to the whole field, and we just needed some kind of change the weather, an adjustment to make something happen,” Hamlin said, smiling. “And we got both of them.” Jimmie Johnson was third for Hendrick Motorsports, which has failed in 14 tries to win the team’s milestone 200th race. Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kasey Kahne also finished in the

I was just wreckingloose that last set.” Truex called the performance a statement moment for Michael Waltrip Racing. Hamlin is starting to have a statement season. He won this year at Phoenix, started on the pole at California, and led 31 laps a couple weeks ago at Martinsville before finishing sixth. He was 12th last week at Texas. “We felt a lot like Phoenix

in the sense we just hung around the top five all day, and at the end we just kind of make our charge, make our run,” Hamlin said. “There were a couple things that had to happen the last run for us to work out, and those things happened.” Matt Kenseth finished fourth despite having a wild afternoon trying to get into the pits, often sliding across the commitment line. Greg Biffle followed up his victory last week at Texas with a fifth-place run, though he conceded he didn’t have the car to contend at Kansas.
